Sorry, Charlie, my fault on the links. Modern ones you have to add the www. to make them work, but older ones still have it. I didn't notice, so I added it, which made the links broken. I just fixed them and tested them. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

Checked both sites and found them working. The first one has a running discussion on pronunciation. For my part, I've only heard the stress on the second syllable, except in a few cases of alternate spelling where the word is spelled kabosh and pronounced KAY-bosh.
